How do I make a 9th grade lesson plan on language analysis including blank verse, Shakespeare idiom, imagery and sonnet form basing it on Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet?

Wikipedia would be a good place to start devloping your outline.

Then head for sites with more specific information, such as the Purdue writing lab.

I would also include some time to read out a short piece of a Shakespeare poem using the accent he would have used. Since he lived during the Great Vowel Shift, the vowels in his speech would have sounded more like Spanish than present-day English.

And of course ask to see the lesson plans of teachers who have been teaching the same subject for decades.
